London's Marquee Club (um, well, another club called The Marquee at least) opens later this month, and as way of celebration offers YOU, the public, some rather splendid (mostly) free shows. Nice.
The free shows, also in aid of Make Trade Fair, go a little something like this:
27 Sep: The Magic Numbers and The Tiny
28 Sep: New Rhodes, Tom Vek, Fans Of Kate and Culture Industry
29 Sep: Dirty Vegas (£10)
30 Sep: Amplifier, Mau Maus and The Aeroplanes
1 Oct: Time For Change Benefit featuring acoustic sets from David Poe, Robyn Hitchcock, Darren Hayman, Imogen Heap and Ed Harcourt (£10)
4 Oct: Art Brut, Kaito and Help She Can't Swim
5 Oct: The Hidden Cameras (£8.50)
8 Oct: SPECIAL GUESTS + Do Me Bad Things + Dead! Dead! Dead! + Peace Burial at Sea
That last one just might have something to do with your friends at DiS. Maybe. Or maybe it doesn't? You'll just have to sit tight and keep 'em peeled. The Marquee can be found on Leicester Square. Gig-goers are encouraged to make a donation to charity at the free shows. Nice.
